The Long Arc of Visual Display

This talk will explore the origins and applications (both historical and contemporary) of data visualization techniques, locating the emergence of the visualizing impulse in eighteenth-century ideas about data, evidence, and observation. By illuminating these ideas at work in examples past and present, Lauren Klein will show how we can begin to identify the arguments—political as much as aesthetic—that underlie all instances of visual display.
Lauren Klein is Assistant Professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech.
